    Playlist cannot be created in Media Player of Windows 8

    Windows Media Player of Windows 8 is not allowing to create the playlist of our own. It is just allowing to listen to songs, by selecting every time. Checked every corner, but not able to find out the problem. Please, help me in giving the best solution.
